### Core Mathematics Coursework

1200310 Algebra 1/1200320 Algebra 1 Honors
The fundamental purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas, called units, deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend, and students engage in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course, and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

1206310 Geometry/1206320 Geometry Honors
The fundamental purpose of the course in Geometry is to formalize and extend students' geometric experiences from the middle grades. Students explore more complex geometric situations and deepen their explanations of geometric relationships, moving towards formal mathematical arguments. Important differences exist between this Geometry course and the historical approach taken in Geometry classes. For example, transformations are emphasized early in this course. Close attention should be paid to the introductory content for the Geometry conceptual category found in the high school standards. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

### Equally Rigorous Mathematics Coursework

1207300 Algebra 1a
Course Description: In Algebra 1-A, instructional time will emphasize four areas: (1) extending understanding of functions to linear functions and using them to model and analyze real-world relationships; (2) solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable and systems of linear equations and inequalities in two variables; (3) building linear functions, identifying their key features and representing them in various ways and (4) representing and interpreting categorical and numerical data with one and two variables.

1200330 Algebra 2/1200340 Algebra 2 Honors
Building on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions, and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations

1210300 Probability & Statistics with Applications Honors
Probability and Statistics is designed to introduce the methods used in the field of applied statistics. Emphasis is given to basic concepts and techniques for collecting and analyzing data, drawing conclusions, and making predictions. The major focus of this course is to provide students with experience in solving problems which can be set ups a mathematical models.

1202340 Pre-Calculus Honors
The purpose of this course is to enable students to develop concepts and skills in advanced algebra, analytic geometry, and trigonometry.

AP Calculus AB is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus course devoted to topics in differential and integral calculus. The AP course covers topics in these areas, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The course teaches students to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations. Students learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.
